Its excuse? This version is smaller.
Does the company figure Macolytes are dumber (sorry, wealthier) than other people?
In the intro to its puff piece, the re-shuffled shuffle “holds 1,000 songs,” says Apple, further down stating:
“Song capacity is based on four minutes per song and 128-Kbps AAC encoding; in 256-Kbps AAC format, song capacity is up to 500 songs; actual capacity varies by encoding method and bit rate.”
Not only but also, “Its revolutionary new VoiceOver feature enables iPod shuffle to speak your song titles, artists and playlist names,” says the company.
But, no choice. There’s no room for a display. And good luck finding it again if you drop it in a grassy area, say.
It also has a “gorgeous new aluminum design with a built-in stainless steel clip that makes it ultra-wearable,” Apple gushes.
The ‘speak’ utility handles English, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish, and battery life is 10 hours, promises Apple.
